A few weeks ago Ghostpoet got us all excited when he announced that he was in the Red Bull Studios with Kano and the 2 were working on a little something. That little something has finally surfaced in the form of a remix of the already brilliant track Cash And Carry Me Home.

K.A takes to the mic and drops a verse over the hypnotic beat. Their 2 contrasting styles blend effortlessly. Listen to the track below and keep an eye out for video footage of the 2 at work.

Aged just 21, Yasmin Shahmir posseses incredible talent and is one of Britain’s most promising female artists.

Yasmin was born in Manchester and raised in Glasgow, but it was the city of London which would prove to be the turning point in her life and provide her with the exposure she sought.

Having moved to London at the age of 19 in order to pursue her DJing career, she soon received the recognition she deserved; going on to DJ for the likes of N*E*R*D, Taio Cruz and Eve.

Off the back of her success in DJing, Yasmin decided to pursue a career in singing, and went on to sign a record deal with Levels Entertainment (part of Ministry of Sound). She has since supported Example on his UK tour, featured on the song ‘Runaway’ with East London’s finest MC; Devlin and most recently went on to release her debut single ‘On My Own’ which charted at #39; an impressive achievement for a debut record. Yasmin is also currently working on her debut album with the likes of Jamie XX, Labrinth and Shy FX.

Having seen her tear of the roof dropping endless Hip-Hop bangers during her DJ set at Rock The Belles, we were eager to talk Yasmin and find out if in fact there is anything that this girl can’t do?
Our wish was granted and here’s what we asked the beautiful singer/DJ/model/superwoman. The last one on that list isn’t entirely true; at least as far as we know!

[LISTEN] Ghostpoet – Peanut Butter Blues & Meloncholy Jam (Full Album) by wearesme

We interviewed him last week, and this week Mike Skinner announced that Ghostpoet is his favourite MC alongside Drake; coincidence? SME think not! Get off the band wagon Mike!

All jokes aside, Ghostpoet’s seal of approval is well earned. His incredible debut album ‘Peanut Butter Blues and Meloncholy Jam’ was released yesterday and here’s your chance to try before you buy. The album is so unique and hypnotic; zone out and appreciate.
Oh and then spend your hard earned on it and support exceptional UK talent. It will be the best £7.99 you’ll spend this year.

[SME MEETS] Ghostpoet *Exclusive Interview* by wearesme

Born Obaro Ejimiwe, and bred in South London; Ghostpoet is a name you will be hearing a great deal more of in 2011.

Living up to his stage name, Obaro is poetic with his words and hypnotic with his flow. It’s difficult to put his music in a genre as it’s filled with diversity; as can be heard on the upcoming album which you can preview here. People would naturally file it under ‘Hip-Hop’, but there is a lot more to Ghostpoet; “I didn’t want to be seen as a rapper” he told us, regarding his choice of stage name.

After completing his degree in Media Production at Coventry University, Obaro moved back to London to further persue his passion for music. His hard work and talent aligned, when he was approached and signed by Giles Peterson’s label; Brownswood.

A brilliant debut single ‘Cash And Carry Me Home’ soon followed. It was released this week and has been championed by the likes of Zane Lowe at Radio 1.

As big fans of his unique and captivating music, SME were chuffed to be offered the opportunity to sit down with Ghostpoet and talk about the success of his single as well as the release of his album ‘Peanut Butter Blues & Meloncholy Jam’ (7th February 2011). Read on to see what Ghostpoet had to say on everything from his love for grime, to touring with Jamie Woon.
